A little question/suggestion for the quick release mechanism

Postby Hadarmil » Sat Oct 28, 2017 14:39

Howdy.

The current quick release of the KG12 grip is not very quick - the parts doing the pinching have a tendency to turn in their sockets,making installation a bit more of a pain than it should. Maybe on next iteration make them a hex/square or cut a chord in the circle...anything to hold it at the right angle. Maybe then add a simple tiny quicklock lever(kinda like in bicycle wheels)...

Just a suggestion.

We thought about it (true), and even tried something like this - but finally dropped the idea.
In real world we have to balance between the size of the device and the strength of the whole mechanism.
You may say, come on, it will hold! - yes, it might hold. In your careful hands. However as we're making these devices in thousands, we cannot risk even a few per cent returns.
So, thank you for the idea, and please do not take my reply as an attempt to arrogantly shut you up. All ideas are welcome, but we have to be very critical about every one.
Best Regards,
